    Out to 600, .223 Rem. 800-1000 is a different game.

    Bra/dasher/brx will all get it done. I think it’s the best bang for the buck in terms of good ballistics, top notch accuracy potential and relatively cheap to load with low recoil.

    If you primarily shoot at a range where the wind is almost always huffing and puffing, a larger cartridge would be preferable to a smaller one, no matter the distance.. However, if you shoot at a range where the wind is primarily "easy going", a very accurate 6mm or 6.5 may take the prize quite often. Times are such now that 597-600s are the NORM at 600 yards and having a rifle capable of attaining a HIGH "X" count has a distinct advantage. At 1000 yards, even under "relatively light" winds, a larger cartridge, as long as it's accurate, will "generally" beat out the smaller ones. Get winds from 10m.p.h. on up at 1000 and you REALLY are at a great disadvantage with smaller cartridges. If you want to be at the pinnacle of 1000 yard cartridges, a 7 S.A.U.M IMP., shooting the 195 Bergers simply can not be matched! At 600 yards, under "normal" conditions, it would be extremely difficult to beat a .260A.I. or a 6.5 x 284>>>having said that, a 6 Dasher will certainly hold it's own and take home the gold enough of the time to make happy the shooter!

    The 6.5 Creedmoor!!! It just gets the job done. I have switched numerous times looking for that little extra edge and I always find myself going back to the 6.5 Creedmoor.

    Let the haters begin.

    Hello Darrin! You won't get any argument from me! The 6.5 x 47, 6.5 Creedmoor and the .260 are so close in performance to each other that for all practical purposes, they are identical.. Oh and by the way, I have never shot a 6.5 Creed!

    No matter what caliber, from 6mm-7mm ballistics are so close anymore. Learn how to read the wind! If you can read wind better than the rest you can win with a sling shot and a rock!

    There's always someone out there waiting to bash a Creedmoor. I can't say enough about that little round, it has always done me really good ... on paper. I kill a lot of paper every week.

    I'd be happy with Winsome or just Winafew anymore Otis. Competition is a little stiffer than it use to be.
